Did I Recently Get Catfished? Adventures in becoming Stalked by a Creeper

I am aware, “Catfish” is the word-of the afternoon these days, but i do believe that simply happened certainly to me recently. Yeah, this guy! Really the only issue in this particular situation is the fact that its some cool looking dude who may have just a bit of a crush on me (more on that later). But to learn about exactly who I found myself “Cat fished” you sorta must recognize how everything had gotten begun. *Insert wavy display and magical harp songs, within urging of my personal character fingers.*

It actually was an everyday night, like many others. Porn, sporting events, supper and coding (because purchase properly). We listen to the tell-tale blip suggesting that my available fb tab has actually a notification, a message. I head over and I also look. Its a message… a lengthy fucking information. We see clearly. I do believe to myself personally “the hell???” I really don’t even know whom this personality is!! After that another information comes. I Do Not respond to either of those… Weird. The gist of this emails ended up being that he knew who I became; he knew, roughly the guy thought, anything was actually happening between myself personally and one common pal of ours and therefore I had to develop as in advance about specific matchmaking requirements I have in place; oh in which he was checking out my personal stuff-over on my blog, which caused their message to start with. Noice! Well, when a note has “I am not attempting to be intimidating, but…” you are sorta becoming truly harmful. Whatever. Oh while the after day I receive two more communications out of this clown where the guy will get down to business. The guy wishes me to assist him “work with this idea for a site i’ve…”  Oh, of course he asks us to end up being adult chat room rather than state any such thing about any of it to your mutual pal as a favor to him… actually? Eff. Myself.

Not simply performs this man pop-up on FB to slide myself completely, but the guy also begins to appear back at my ‘visitors’ list on OkCupid… i am talking about, I am not hard to find on the internet, however it does take some work to track down myself on OkCupid… Sigh. Women… At long last get “it.” I have many shit you must endure from creepers on the net. Provided this is certainly a very little sample, but i really do kinda have it today.

But, Alex, that isn’t “Cat Fishing.” Yes, yes, I Am mindful. I am acquiring there; I’ll secure the jet in due time, young ones.

Thus I do not hear a peep with this guy in over weekly and that I never discuss this experience to our shared buddy, as I really do not want to muck such a thing up. I get a comment regarding Urban Dater, on one regarding the posts. Looks legit, I answer. Absolutely nothing funny. This exact same person follows me personally on Twitter. Starts producing laughs beside me and exactly what perhaps not. Which is all really and good. No problem truth be told there. But when you all effortlessly (and very rapidly) guessed it absolutely was psycho man from FB. The truth is, these comments and this Twitter profile he was calling myself from was phony. Picture and all! I experiencedn’t placed two and two together just yet and I’m shitty at math. Just what! Its only by pure possibility that I found out it was him. I went to agree a classic touch upon a post that my brand-new stalker had commented on as well. It actually was next that We watched the gravatar on his comment paired their FB profile picture. That Has Been the only real comment of their such as that…


I ought to remember that inside week that followed, this very chronic other has become trying to experience me to get working, or to seize a bite for eating. At this time, I know what’s going on, but I do not permit on about this. Why? Because I would like to figure out what i will perform right here. I would stated previously this to my good friend as to what were going on. Apparently he’s not a first time offender. He is creeped on various other men, as well. I did so more inquiring to know whom otherwise understands the guy. Turns out a pal of mine video games with him and lets on that he is additionally bi-sexual/bi-curious. Intriguing. The storyline could thicken…

We duck their attempts at meeting up during the urging of my pals, however the man’s a touch of a doppleganger from the Igor looking mofo from 300. What’s the worst which could take place?

That delivers us to this blog post. As I compose this, i have got a “discussion call” on a Sunday because of this turd and another of his “associates” the guy nonetheless believes I’m not sure exactly who he or she is.

@alexjvasquez cool kidney beans throughout the pressgram. How does 9-10am seminar call sound? Ill call your own digidesign number. I am an earlier individual =p

Precisely why make use of he? Why enable the behavior? We dunno. It seems if you ask me this particular monkey must be told some things on how to never be a creeper and all sorts of around oddball about shit such as this. Perhaps some one should tell him in your thoughts their own company and acquire a life.

Some one should tell “Joseph” that 9 to 10am actually very early. But any, now I am merely becoming a nit picky jerk. Anyway, just what will I say to this putz? Just how long can I try to let him carry this around? Will he reveal his genuine identity straight away? Will he however ask us to re-build their shitty website? All Of You can find as I’ll definitely publish regarding what occurs, offered he hasn’t used up my personal apartment down…

Keep tuned in.
